Background information on Current topics in the News





Hey Friends

Oct 15 2011: Occupy Wall Street

Heck, our government has not just lost credibility in the Middle-East and around the world. The US governement is not trusted by Americans, for good reasons.

Our government has been illegitimate by our own Constitutional and legal standards here at home since the Robber Barons crushed the Farmer Democracy in the 19th century, and shortly afterward began building their Global Empire and Domestic Police State.

We have been a corporate state managing a growing empire for over a century.

The transition of the United States from democracy to corporate state has been ignored by generations of "Americans" who have traded in their rights and responsibilities as Citizens in their democratic country for the "pleasures," "profits," and "prestiege" of being a Consumer in a Corporate State.

Feb 2, 2011: As you can see from the links at the top of this page, the historic nature of the events in the middle east have forced me to address the situation America finds itself in. I've posted a new little essay on the situation in Egypt and some references to our recent history of supporting Mubarak's bloody dictatorship. Thirty years of American Political support for a brutal dictatorship...

Who the Hell are we? Our foreign policy is the global face of Corporate Fascism.

The overall publication situation of The Committee for Democracy has not changed. I am currently up to my neck trying to construct a comprehensive backpacker's Trail Guide of the High Sierras between Lake Tahoe and Mount Whitney.

Friday, Jan 22, 2010: Status of this WebSite Update




I spent 7 months on the High Sierra trails after fire burned my apartment and ended publication of political analysis and commentary. (see last notice, below)

As much as political production was damaging my "spirit," these extended trips arcoss the High Sierras repaired it.

After four Tahoe to Whitney Hikes, and thousands of miles of four-season travel across the High Sierras, I have launched Tahoe to Whitney.

After this site produces some revenue, I will resume political analysis and commentary.

recent history of "terror" torture





Note: This announcement by the Obama admin that they will not prosecute Bush's torture crimes has no basis in domestic or international law. There are no exemptions in either for crimes committed under orders.

Every individual who participated in acts of cruelty and torture, from the White House to the Torture Chamber, is accountable for their actions.

By forestalling the execution of law, Obama is not just betraying his oath to defend the Constitution, he is indemnifying and perpetuating international state torture, and has established torture as a Presidential Prerogative.

The Nazis and Jap fascists we hung for exactly the same crimes all claimed that inflicting torture was their duty under orders.

Then we hung them. We can only hope we apply the same standards to ourselves that we apply to others.

But this latest report, in a peer-reviewed journal by a Danish scientist, described below, and his interview, at right, really do deserve your attention.

I believe the secret prisons/torture centers were turned over to the states allied with us lock, stock, and barrel. The stock that the states who provided the sites for our secret torture centers received is composed of thousands of individuals kidnapped around the world by the CIA and our various Proxies. The CIA and USA have merely stepped back, and now act through these proxies, as they have done under every previous administration.

Site News

Sorry about the shoddy state of the committee sites. Man, this fire thing has really put me behind the eight ball.

I'm still removing and cleaning, then storing all of my salvageable possessions from my fire-damaged apartment.

I'm guessing that I'll hit the road for a couple of months, until I can reoccupy my apartment, so this site, and NextRevolution will take some time off.

I'll Teabag them all, both the Corporate Right (FOX) and the Corporate Left (CNN), as well as the Corporate Center (PBS).

And being the whores they are, they will like it!

If any of you really know what "teabagging" is, you're laughing your asses off!

What a bunch of Frk'n Idiots!

The Problem is not Taxes.

The Problem is that Our Democratic Republic has been corrupted. To restore the legitimacy of our laws, policies, and especially our tax policies, our Political Process itself must be Reformed
